MOSART II: Misconception Oriented Standards-based Assessment Resources for Teachers

MOSART II provides assessment support to NSF-funded MSPs. Our on-line assessment system is now operational in K-12 earth science, K-12 astronomy, K-8 life science, K-8 physical sciences and high school chemistry and physics. Our tests for teachers include measures of subject-matter knowledge (SMK) and pedagogical content knowledge (PCK). This poster features results from modern psychometric analysis (item response theory). We continue to support our pencil-and-paper assessments for MSPs who need to administer them to teachers and for teachers wishing to administer our tests to their students. For more information about MOSART, please contact Jaimie Miller (
